If you are not familiar with the cuisines of East Africa then you are in for a pleasant surprise. Firstly because it's easy to find vegan options, and secondly, because they're AMAZING!
Asmara is an Eritrean restaurant. Alas it primarily serves meat.
Though if I'm honest this does not deter me, as I'm the only herbivore in my omnivore social circle so it's somewhere we can all eat.
The most sensible way to eat East African is through set menus as the food is a shareable platter of dishes presented on a large sour dough pancake (injera).
The vegan set menu is clear and unambiguous, and the place understands the difference between veggie and vegan as there are ovo/lacto dishes separate from the set menu.
Dishes are generally simple but highly flavoured. For example milled chickpea stew, kind of like the best humus you've ever tasted, but warm and spicy! Or other various lentil, pulse, fried green and vegetable dishes.
The platter is Â£30 for 2 then Â£8 for each additional person, so Â£15 pp for 2, Â£11.50 pp for 4 etc...
I want to go again!!!Pros: Incredible food, Very good value, Lovely ambience
Cons: Serves meat
